I've Been Off So Long it Looks Like On to Me

The reading at Moe's went quite well, I thought. I read the bit about the first band practice to feature Sam Hellerman's mail-ordered bass. When the part came up, I played the chorus of the song "Losers Like You" instead of just reading it, which I have never done before; and it got some laughs, which is always a relief. I was surprised that most of the requests were for reading rather than playing, including some from people who just said "read more." I'd never heard that before.

There are a few small chunks of info about the movie situation in this East Bay Express article. (And I have to say, Chris Henchy really does give good quote, once again.) By the way, the show listing in the article says I'll be reading from King Dork at the Porchlight Christmas show on December 18th. Actually, I'll just be one of many doing a walk-on and playing a song or something.

Still no Matilda, sadly. I believe putting up fliers and going door to door to ask for the help of the neighbors last night might have interrupted a drug deal or two, but fortunately no one was shot. That I heard anyway.

The thing at Moe's was fun, and a nice break from finals and papers and such.

I sure wish we got some Dr. Frank readings and performances out here on the East Coast. Namely Mass/NH/Maine.

How many "book songs" are there? I've heard, "I wanna Ramone you", "Gooey Glasses", "Still Not Done Loving You, Mama", "Thinking of Suicede" amd I think that's it. Is there any place to hear the rest?

Sorry to hear about Matilda, Frank. She looks like a lovely cat.
